HP G71-340 US Laptop does not boot up.

 Blocked Profile -
The laptop fails to start. No leds lit up other than the power LED.
The battery was almost close to dead but it was working fine with AC power since last 9 months.I tried removing the battery and powering it on, it does not start even then.
Tried the 1 min power trick, flipping the laptop and then trying to power on with just the AC cord, didn't help either.
When I press the power button with just the AC power and release the power button, the power led goes off. Also with the battery in place, the power led fails to light up.
Got a new battery but no change. Any ideas?
